Florida Boating Accident Attorneys

Holding negligent boaters responsible for your injuries

The beautiful Florida Atlantic and Gulf coasts, inland waterways and lakes attract locals and tourists from across the globe. These waters can become congested with inexperienced and reckless drivers who put you at serious risk of harm. Contributing to the dangers, liveries rent high-powered motor boats and personal watercraft to guests who have never driven a boat. Also, consumption of alcoholic beverages is harder for law enforcement to detect and regulate — but is no less dangerous — when a drunk person is piloting a boat instead of a car.

Florida boating accident lawyers at Viles & Beckman, LLC have more than 40 years of combined experience representing victims of boating accidents. We aggressively pursue the negligent parties responsible for injuries that occur on the water.

Florida boating laws

Florida statutes govern boating safety and enforcement in Florida. Your accident may also be subject to federal laws under certain circumstances. Our Florida boating accident lawyers possess vast knowledge about intricate state and federal boating regulations, and we skillfully litigate cases involving such complex issues as deep sea water injuries, federal vessels and United States-owned property, in addition to accidents that occur in Florida waters.

Recover damages for serious boating accident injuries

The combination of speed, sharp propellers, hard objects, lack of restraints and water create hazardous circumstances during boating accidents. We aggressively help clients who have been injured by:

  • Propellers
  • Collisions with other boats
  • Crashes into docks and piers
  • Contact with submerged structures and sandbars
  • Drowning
  • Skiing and wakeboarding accidents
